Minutes for September 24, 2019 Meeting

Convened at 7:00 PM

Attendees:
Rob ZisetteJoe MarkmanEllen HewittDick EitelSayna ParsiKaren SchurrColleen HackettAlice PoggiBrian DeLucaFred RiversGina HarmonMichael Hassold

Following around the table introductions, Rob Z chaired the meeting.

CH commented on considerations for improving the steps access to the water at the West Beach Bathhouse area. Noted was the difficulty young small children have negotiating the current large steps.
